Alice Oddotte was born in Nakuru county in Kenya and is currently pursuing a degree in BSc Agricultural Economics and Resource management in Maasai Mara University. She likes meeting new people, making new friends, watching movies and travelling. She is an easy-going kind of person with impeccable observation skills. Hard work and being time conscious is what guides her in doing a task as she believes timing is everything. She believes what makes her significant is the fact that she is persistent and does not stop until she gets what she wants. She believes our attitude can either make us or ruin us as people perceive us in illumination of our attitude towards life and other people. She works hard in order to reach her dreams and goals so as to impact the lives not only of her family members, but also the society at large. Everything she does is based on the fact that who we are today is out of what happened to us yesterday and that personality is a dynamic concept and one tends to imbibe things which they learn out of daily experience.
